What more can one say? Delicious Italian cooking, fine wines, great service and a wonderful location on West Armitage in the lovely Lincoln Park area.

Delightful neighborhood resturant worth seeking out. Family owned and run, nestled in Chicago's Garden District. my favorite things here are the excellent seasonal appetizers (yesterday it was freas figs stuffed with goat cheese and wrapped in crisp prosciutto and cornbread fried fresh oysters) and the dessert menu. Not a thing wrong with the mains, but the chef seems to be more creative with the appetizers......and it is my considered opinion they serve the best creme brulee in the city here. you will enjoy this gem. go on Tuesday if you can.( see title above)

Nice neighborhood restaurant, but very noisy inside. Got better as the place emptied out around 8pm. Patio looked inviting but the weather was a bit too cold. Everybody's meal was good, no complaints. The pizza was light and crunchy. Cured salmon special was mouth watering. Will return.

This place has been around for a few years now and always serves up some great Italian food. Outdoor seating in the spring and summer time. Highly recommend the lamb chops and the rigatoni. Wine list is overpriced, but on Tuesdays they have 1/2 off bottles of wine!

Friendly staff, wonderful food, large portions, nice atmosphere - what more can you want? Good value - about $35 per person.
